  • This USB-GPIB works great in a Linux environment. Just uses a standard /dev/ttyUSBx device. No special software to talk to it, I use minicom, then wrote a serial driver to talk to my Tek 2440 scope.
    Great product!!

  • Does anyone know if there is any drivers to use this device in C#, I want to control some instruments but i don’t want to spend time writing the comms.

    • I found a developer who has written a visa interface and support the prologix unit. take a look here http://www.crf-global.com/software.php

  • do you know if this works with AAS perkin elmer 3100. thank you

  • Anyone knows if this will work with a Rohde&Schwarz Signal Generator SML02 ?

  • Am interested to procure this item. Please ask Indian representative to contact me in 09431131552 / 09471186888 / 09334820420 (Direct Cell).

  • Would this GPIB/USB unit be compatible with raspberry pi?

  • Please contact Prologix at support@prologix.biz for all questions, including those about compatibility.

  • Would this GPIB/USB unit be compatible with a Audioprecision “GPIB” system ONE. there are a lot of those great audio test units being sold in the used market, product support from Audioprecision as been terminated on this model. So GPIB compatibility issues are to be found elsewere.

  • Thinking about buying this for my HP 1631D.

    Anyone know if it will work with the Linux gpib-utils package? http://gpib-utils.sourceforge.net/

    gpib-utils looks to be supported by linux-gpib, and I can’t find Prologix mentioned there… http://linux-gpib.sourceforge.net/

  • Does this controller work with HP 1660A and HP 1715A?

  • Anyone know if this will work with the Anritsu MS2661C Spectrum Analyzer?

  • Anyone knows if this will work with an HP8903B? Thinking of buying this USB-GPIB.

  • Very low-cost way to put utility back into your older HP gear. HP8753 and many-many more. I have been using this with my HP8753A, 3577A and 3561A with simple 32-bit API software from ‘http://www.ke5fx.com/gpib/setup.exe’ and have been able to print/plot to any printer on my LAN or save as an image via GPIB (HP-IB) just as if I had an original HP plotter. ‘http://www.thegleam.com/ke5fx/gpib/faq.htm’

  • This is a great product at a reasonable price. Works flawlessly with my 8569B spectrum analyzer.

  • I have tried the USB-GPIB interface with four devices, an HP8752B vector network analyzer, a Tektronix TDS430 digital oscilloscope, a Panasonic VP8191 synthesized signal generator and an HP87510A gain-phase analyzer (actually a vector network analyzer by another name.)
    All but the 87510A worked perfectly. I found a problem when attempting to write to the plotter emulator (PrintCapture.) When I inquired about the incompatibility, I was given immediate attention by the USB-GPIB\’s developer, who worked with me (including providing special test software to analyze the problem.) The incompatibility (which apparently derives from a non-standard way the 87510A handled a plotter status request command) is now fixed.
    I can highly recommend the USB-GPIB adapter. A great product at a reasonable price. And fantastic support from the product’s developer.
    My only ding is that the board really needs a case for mechanical protection and locking screws so that it can be firmly attached to the test equipment. I hope that a future revision will address the mechanical issue.
